Spinal Tap settle soundtrack dispute with Universal Music

6 November 2019



The creators of rock "mockumentary" This Is Spinal Tap say they have resolved a legal dispute with Universal Music over the film's soundtrack.

Harry Shearer, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Rob Reiner, who starred in the 1984 film, said they had reached a settlement with Universal's parent company Vivendi.

The actors claimed the entertainment group had denied them payments.

Another part of the dispute over the film rights and merchandise is ongoing.

Directed by Reiner, This Is Spinal Tap followed the misfortunes of a fictional British rock band as they promoted their new record.

Under the new agreement, the band's music will continue to be distributed through Universal Music Group and the rights will eventually be given to the creators.
